Rockville is a fun agrarian community, seeking community unity with several events planned each year.  All Rockville residents are encouraged to participate!  Food is offered at most events and a good time is had by all.

 

Wreaths Across America 

 ‘Do Good Twice’ by supporting local Sponsorship Groups in Rockville while sharing the mission to Remember, Honor, Teach

This event is held yearly in December.  Usually a ceremony is held at the

at the Springdale Cemetery beginning at 10:00 a.m. on a Saturday, in December.

The Town of Rockville laying of the wreaths will begin after following Springdale’s ceremony.

We encourage everyone to come to the Rockville Cemetery to

participate in the placing of the wreaths on our veterans graves.

The organization’s mission – Remember, Honor, Teach – is carried out in part each year by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies in December at Arlington, as well as at thousands of veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond.

Arbor Day will be held Saturday, April 27, 2024, in the Community Park from 9:00 am-12:00 noon.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a dessert to share and a tree will be planted.  Our existing trees are also pruned.  Everyone is welcome!  

Rockville’s Christmas Party is held in early December at the Community Center.  Santa often makes an appearance.  Christmas carols are sung and everyone brings a treat to share. The last few years we have enjoyed seasonal music from the Desert Strings and then join in with a few carols.  The entire community welcomes people of all ages for this family event.

 

Appreciation Breakfast is in February when we recognize our volunteers.  Breakfast is provided by the town, free to all who attend!  All residents are welcome to join and mingle over breakfast.

Communtiy Emergency Response Team exists to help our village respond to environmental or other possible catastrophes.  We are looking for volunteers to join our team.  Please contact Megan Honer-Orton to join the team: 435-772-3393
